DI Polo Club in Plant City, the site of this 2009 match, will host the Reeves Charity Polo Classic on Feb. 23.

Mallets, chukkers, braided horse tails and festive fashions will all be a part of the Reeves Charity Polo Classic on Feb. 23 at Plant City's DI Polo Club, 1003 Cowart Road.

After a successful inaugural event, organizers are even more hopeful about bringing out a crowd and raising funds for the three charities that will receive proceeds: Starting, Right Now; Wheels Of Success and the Children's Cancer Center.

Gates will open at 11 a.m. and the feature match will begin at noon and feature some of the nation's top players, including John Walsh, host of America's Most Wanted. Lauren Thompson, host of Golf Channel's Top 10, Golf Now and Morning Drive also will be among the special guests.

During half time guests can take part in the time honored tradition of the champagne divot stomp.

The derby-inspired event will feature live and silent auctions, an Argentinian barbecue and complimentary beer and wine. Additional activities are scheduled throughout the day.
